A mindset is a series of self-perceptions or beliefs people hold about themselves. These determine behaviour, outlook and mental attitude.
People with a fixed mindset believe that abilities, intelligence and talents are all traits we are born with. They often obstruct their development through their belief in innate talent and their fear of failure. They see failure as a disaster. People with a growth mindset believe their talents and abilities are developed through effort, teaching and practice. They believe anyone can improve and be smarter if they work at it. They are open to new ideas and learning and see failures as opportunities. It is possible to develop a growth mindset, and in the accounting profession today, it is not just a good idea, but vital to long-term success.

Topics on the agenda

Topics that will be covered include fixed mindset, growth mindset, attributes of a growth mindset workplace, developing “can-do” thinking, personal growth and leading with a growth mindset.

Target Audience

Members and non-members of the Malta Institute of Accountants – accountants, managing partners of firms, directors, managers, and anyone interested in the areas being covered by this Session.
Through this workshop participants will learn the difference between a fixed and a growth mindset and understand the repercussions of both. They will be enabled to challenge their own mindset as well as the myths about mindsets. The workshop will provide opportunities for participants to move toward the growth end of the mindset spectrum.
